    Thanks for posting Marko. I watched a little farther and found it interesting that the Diabolo style slugs were stable and accurate when seated backwards. Tail heavy not nose heavy. I wouldn't have thought that they would fly that way without tumbling. Gp

    They're on the way. Just picked up 2,200 Cheddite economy Primed hulls from BPI $99. Not a lot more than the price of the primers. Gp

    Yea... that kinda bugs me.. I can’t get in on those deals as they won’t/can’t ship primed huls

    Wow.

    Here in Finland I can hardly get 300 Cheddites for that price. Plus shipping which is ~20 Euros.

    Loaded factory trap ammo is cheaper than hulls, 50-60 Euros / 250. Sort of guided me to develop converted "Economy Slugs" for practise.

    Thanks LB

    Those .69 Minies were an interesting thing to cast using pure lead. I ran about 50 that session, the 1st 15 or so I had real issues with filling out the cavity. Once the mould was hot it did a little better, I had to run the lead temp up to 790 F to get a visible complete fill on them. Even then I must have had some air pockets, because the weight differences on the best 10 looking ones were up to 10 grains different. Using pure lead these things ranged from 740 grains to 750 grains.

    You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who they think can do nothing for them.

    Added a circa 1918 Parker VH 16 gauge 26” on an 0 frame to my accumulation. Either I’ll pick it up next Saturday at the Southern SxS or a friend will pick it up for me . Click image for larger version.
